Kiwi icons are ‘Trashed’

We’re calling for registrations for the 10th Anniversary of Trash to Fashion®.

This year’s show at the Trusts Stadium will celebrate some of our greatest kiwi icons. The categories reflect what it means to be kiwi to us all, irrespective of age, gender or cultural background.

“We also believe that Kiwis can make anything out of a bit of four-by-two and a length of number 8 wire and we’re counting on you to prove it! Take the Ute (or MPV) down to the farm, the ‘dump’ or the garage and stock up on all the leftovers you can find. This is a chance to showcase real kiwi ingenuity, so bring it out of the shed and onto the stage, says Project Co-ordinator Glenda Roberts.

“The Trusts Trash to Fashion® awards are a powerful tool for Waitakere City Council to spread the word through creative innovation about recycling, reusing, and of course, ultimately reducing waste amongst its own community, but the event itself is now also reaching a greater audience NZ wide’” she says.

Check your local café, library, bookstore, from the Call Centre 839 0400, or on the council website www.trashtofashion.com or by email:glenda.roberts@waitakere.govt.nz. Further enquiries to Glenda Roberts, Project Co-ordinator, Trash to Fashion® 2005, 836 8000 ext 8431.

Trash to Fashion® 2005 dates checklist: Registration Form due 5pm Friday 1 July 2005; Garment due: 5pm Saturday 1 October 2005; Awards Night, 8pm Friday 25 November 2005; Performances 2pm & 8pm Saturday 26th November 2005
